    I have a USB storage device that insists on being mapped to drive H:. The problem is that drive H: is already mapped to a server. If I boot XP with the storage device attached, I can't get to my server drive. If I insert the USB device after boot up, I can't access it at all.

    I recall a means to change the default mapping of hardware drives in prior versions of windows but cannot see how to do this in XP. The other obvious work around of changing the network mapping will not work for me because of corporate policy.

    Any ideas for how to re-map the USB device would be appreciated.

    Right-click My Computer, go to Manage. Click Drive Management, then select the H: drive (USB drive), and click Change Drive Letter.
